One day there was a girl called Jessica. Her mum died when she was three and her dad went to war to Scotland.
Jessica had no choice but to stay with her rude mean aunty who had two daughters called Spice Girls.
One day Jessica got a letter. It said that her father died. She was mourning for him.
Jessica had two stepsisters, one good Melanie, and one bad Victoria. Melanie always helped Jessica, she cheered her up and she told her very often:
Don’t worry! I’ll help you whenever you need me. But Melanie hid it from mother and sister.
Melanie brought Jessica different delicious food: ż urek (Polish soup, typical in the south of Poland), bigos ( cabbage with meat) and pierogi ( pastry with different fillings).
OOOOne day her stepmother saw that Melanie was helping Jessica. She decided to punish them and she locked the girls in the cellar and gave them ragged clothes. What is even more, she starved them for one week.
. It was freezing cold and damp there. You could smell rotten potatoes and hear mice squeaking and scrawling.
TTTThe girls whispered to each other and tried to think of a way to get out of the cellar. They were talking about different possible run away plans when suddenly they heard somebody screaming.
Suddenly, appeared a big figure. Jessica asked: -What’s your name?
-My name is Mariusz, people called me Pudzian. I’m a weightlifting world champion. I’ll rescue you – said a strange man.
JJJJessica and Melanie said happily: ---- Thanks. ---- You’re welcome! – replayed Pudzian. WWWWhen they got out from the dark cellar, they went to the market. There the crowd shouted:
---- King at the market!!!!! Mieszko I !!!!!!!!! ---- I declare ceremonially, that I invite everyone for the ball! – said proudly the king.
So, Jessica, Melanie and Pudzian decided to go to the ball. First, they went to ‘Smyk’ (shop) to buy dresses. The dresses looked beautifully. After shopping Pudzian took girls at the party.
